As a teenager I used to love the idea of getting teddy bears, flowers, and candy for Valentine's Day, skip forward a few years and it was jewelry, but now I prefer to actually get up and do something with my boyfriend for Valentine's Day that isn't dinner and a movie. I mean does your man really want to see The Vow?!? It's not that I'm anti-Valentine's Day but I feel like we've do all the Valentine's Day type activities year round so it's not special or unique.
This year we've planned on heading to Blood Manor in SoHo for some Valentine's Day Frights! For those of you who do not know, Blood Manor is one of the premier haunted houses in the tri-state area. You know me and my boo love visited haunted houses like this one and this one in October, but for two nights only Blood Manor opens up to visitors and has a Bloody Valentine's Weekend February 10th and 11th. I had no idea about this until I received an email from Gilt City about discounted tickets, needless to say you need Gilt City. Here's your invite!
Not into haunted houses? Do something different this Valentine's Day and find a local cooking class and take it together. Then, test out your skills at home together for a special Valentine's Day dinner. It's even cooler if you pick a cuisine that reminds you both of a special trip you took together. Went to Paris? Pick French cuisine. Or dying to go to somewhere cool but haven't made it there yet, pick a dish inspired but that country or location and whip it up!
What are you guys doing this Valentine's Day?
